1K Rifles

Being a USMC Trained, USN Precision Rifleman, perhaps I have an extra 1000 Yard rifle in the locker.

Having access to the 1K range at Fort Stewart probably stokes the flames? But just how many other folks feel the need to have more than a half dozen 1000 yard + rifles in the locker at any time?

Let's see, I have four HS Precision HTRs, a Sig SSG 3000, and a Steyr SSG 69. Do they count?

A thousand yard rifle isn't much use to a guy with 350 yard eyes.

If I need to engage something farther out than that I'm calling in an air strike on it...

Or just getting in my car and driving even farther away from it.

Hmm, does the projectile remain supersonic until at least 1000 yards?
Can the rifle/cartridge/shooter combo be expected to score a hit more often than not on a 1000 Yard NRA/Military Target? Does the rifle/cartridge/projectile combo still generate at least 1000 pounds of kinetic energy at or beyond 1000 yards or are they regulated to punching paper?

I've got a 20 inch barreled DPMS NATO [.308 Win] REPR. (which on a good day {low wind conditions} is barely a 1K rifle) 22 & 24 inch barrelled reworked Remington MILSPEC in .308 Win. 24 inch MILSPEC in 300 Win Mag. 24 inch Remington North American 300 Win Mag. My M1a's currently need refurbishing prior to taking any trips to the 1K line, but the McMillan TAC 50 can perform if the range allows.

My eyes are still good enough to see into high quality glass, which is nowadays a must for this Old Guy at the 1K range. But only paper/steel need be concerned about being engaged at 1K, short of armageddon.

Snake45: If your only 1000 yards away when you get into your car, it better be really fast if someone's got the TAC-50 pressed against thier shoulder.
back at you. LOL.

Three of the HS Precisions are 300 win mag and I forgot about my McMillan M86 also in 300 Win Mag. And yes Glass is required and they are mostly for paper punching. Hre's five shots at 100 yards with one of the HS rifles.

Impressive bearcat6. But 100 yard groups don't make 1000 yard hits. Got a thousand yard target or two that you would consider posting? I know it's allot to ask, but it is rather significant In My Humble Opinion.

We don't have a range that long around here. I guess I'm just a lousy shot.

I think that's a bit to harsh. Bet you would do just fine if they opened up a 1K range in your local area. Wish everyone had an easy trip to a local 1K range. Ain't many folk's whose 100 group looks real good next to Mac's.

See if any of the 1000K ranges listed are near you.

Thanks for the map. There is one range listed on it for 600 yards and that is two hours a way from me.

When can we expect your offhand or bench results from the 600 yard range?
